PHET Interactive Simulations: Generator
Generate electricity with a bar magnet! Discover the physics behind the phenomena by exploring magnets and how you can use them to make a bulb light.
Sample Learning Goals
Identify equipment and conditions that produce induction
Compare and contrast how both a light bulb and voltmeter can be used to show characteristics of the induced current
Predict how the current will change when the conditions are varied.
Explain practical applications of Faraday's Law
Explain what is the cause of the induction
